Patrol Division

The Hancock County Sheriff’s Office Patrol Division provides 24 hours a day/7 days a week patrols for the citizens of Hancock County.  Patrol deputies are responsible for responding to all complaint calls which may include vehicle accidents, reports of crime or criminal activity, domestic violence, missing persons, suspicious activities and any calls for assistance from citizens. The patrol deputy gathers the preliminary information which is subsequently provided to criminal investigators and/or narcotics agents to enhance the supplementary follow-up criminal investigations. All patrol deputies are uniformed and operate fully marked Sheriff’s Office vehicles.

All Hancock County Sheriff’s Office patrol deputies are certified as law enforcement officers by the Mississippi Board of Law Enforcement Officers Standards and Training (BLEOST) prior to being allowed to perform advanced patrol duties. The Hancock County Sheriff’s Office Patrol Division consists of a Patrol Commander, Captain Andre Fizer, who supervises five (5) Patrol Lieutenants, four (4) Patrol Sergeants along with a number of patrol deputies who are augmented by the Hancock County Reserve Division who supplement its manpower.  In addition, the Hancock County Sheriff’s Office Patrol Division includes specialized units under Captain Fizer’s command to include the D.U.I. Enforcement Units, Canine Units, School Resource Officers, Animal Control Officer, Warrants Officer and Process Servers. 

Captain Andre Fizer

In 1995, Captain Andre’ Fizer began his law enforcement career with the Hancock County Sheriff’s Office (HCSO) as a part-time correctional officer.  Fizer later advanced to a full-time position and was promoted from within the ranks in the Correctional Facility to Sergeant culminating to the rank of Staff Sergeant.  While working in Corrections, Fizer became a member of the Special Operations Division (SWAT) and was a dedicated member until 2010.
In 1997, Fizer, serving under the Hancock County Sheriff’s Office, became a patrol officer for the HCSO.  Fizer performed patrol duties and was promoted within the ranks of the Patrol Division to Sergeant.
In 2000, Fizer was selected to be a Criminal Investigator.  As a Criminal Investigator, Fizer investigated numerous felony cases with subsequent successful prosecutions.  In 2003, Fizer was selected by the administration to be the Assistant Commander of the Criminal Investigation Division (CID).  During his tenure with the CID, Fizer earned certifications as an Arson Investigator, Domestic Violence Investigator, Certified Computer Voice Stress Analyzer Examiner, and Mississippi Certified Investigator.

In 2012, Fizer competed and was promoted by Sheriff Ricky Adam to be his Captain of the Patrol Division where he currently holds this position.  Under Captain Fizer leadership, all patrol deputies, D.U.I. units, court bailiffs, process server, animal control officer and reserve division serve under his purview.
